Rider: Bode Merrill. Location: Jackson Hole backcountry, WY. Bode Merrill is not only the best all-around snowboarder alive, he’s also one of the funniest, smartest, and most generous humans I’ve ever met. Aaron Dodds and I were in Jackson Hole with Bode and Johnnie Paxson last winter and I was basically shooting wherever Dodds wasn’t, so I got the chance to shoot Bode slaughtering the old pass road gap. This is a backside seven japan. He landed it second try. Bode is incredible, and I’m so stoked I got to shoot him, even if it was second angle.
